Week Three information and Merit Award winner b

Good afternoon parents, 

I hope you have had a lovely start to week 3 and you are enjoying this little ray of sunshine we are getting before the big storm next week...ask your child if they can tell you what type of cloud makes rain 😁


Thank you to all the parents for your efforts with homework the last fortnight. We have really noticed an increase in the children's reading since returning to Term 3 and have loved when they come in so proud of their speed reading times from their spelling words. Homework is due next Friday the 14th of August and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me. 

Please see below of an example of how homework should be filled out 😻

Welcome to Term Three!

Welcome back to term three!

Welcome back to Term three! I hope you all had a lovely holiday and the students are feeling refreshed and renewed after their two week break!

What's On This Term?
This term in writing, we will be continuing with our persuasive writing focus and then moving on to procedure writing which will go hand in hand with our Chemical Science unit. Our Maths focus this term will be skip counting, patterning, multiplication, division and time.  

In Science we will be exploring how materials can be used for different purposes and how they can change by either heating or cooling them. Get read for some super fun experiments this term!

In Visual Arts we will be learning about colour (primary colours and how they mix to form secondary colours). We will experiment with some colour mixing and have a go at creating artworks using complementary colours.

Homework will be sent home on Monday which includes the homework grid, fluency reading grid and a spelling list with the focus sound that we are learning. We love it when you can fill in your child's R.E.D reading folder which helps us track how they are going in their reading.  This fortnight, our focus sound is 'ng' 😎Please ensure that you sign your child's homework grid before July 31st (the due date) to we can monitor your child's progress at home. Please refer to the photo below of what a completed homework grid should look like 🌟

Before school Drop Off 
As restrictions have eased, parents are now welcome on the school grounds. Our Admin have directed us that restrictions of adults in the class will continue until instructed otherwise so Kiss and Drop will still remain at the door of the classroom at the beginning of the term. As school begins at 8.40 am, if your child arrives after this time, you will have to sign them in at the office. We are starting to practice our team games for the Athletics carnival so having your child here in the morning really helps them to get to know the rules and process of each game.  

Mission Markets 
Our annual OLC Mission Markets-  celebrating Our Lady of the Cape Feast Day-  are fast approaching (Friday 21st August - Week 5). Please keep an eye on the blog for what our year level will be hosting/ providing for the day πŸ™

Dates for Your Diary:
OLC Open Night : Wednesday 26th August
OLC Athletics Carnival: Thursday 27th of August
Pupil Free Day: Friday 28th August
Catholic Day (Pupil Free Day): Monday 31st August
Year One Family Mass: Saturday 12th of September
Photo Day: Thursday 10th and Friday 11th of September

I'm looking forward to a wonderful term!

A quick reminder

Good afternoon parents,

This is just a quick reminder that the wheels after meals roller blading/skate boarding and scooter-ing session for the Year One and Two children will take place tomorrow at lunch time. The children should put any equipment such as knee pads, helmets and scooters etc. behind Mr Lee's office in the morning. Please be sure to bring in your permission slip otherwise your child will not be able to participate in this wonderful opportunity.

Merit Award Winner

Congratulations to Grace who was our week 9 Merit Award winner! You are a little superstar Grace!

PJ Day

We loved coming to school in our PJ's last Friday. We raised over $350 for Project Compassion and the children had a wonderful (and comfortable day) at school.

School Starting time

Just a gentle reminder that our school day begins at 8.40 am. After that time, you must sign in your child at the office as it is apart of our attendance record directed from Catholic Education. If you need to speak to me urgently, please try and catch me before 8.40 am or send an email the night before as I am often taking the children down to fitness or Library on a Friday. I appreciate your support with this.

One week to go!

Welcome to Week 9

Good afternoon parents,

I hope you had a lovely weekend in the sunshine and have made the most of the sunny weather before the downfall of rain begins!

Just a few messages for this week...


Homework has been glued into your child's homework if they brought their book in and will be due on the last day of Term (Friday 3rd July). If you would like to bring it in earlier, please feel free to do so. We understand that the children are getting tired towards the end of the term but we feel that a good routine needs to be maintained to benefit your child's learning journey. We would really appreciate if you could do the top three grey boxes which includes:

  • Reading 10-15 aloud each night
  • Spelling: Children using their sound out fist to identify how many sounds are in each word. We are learning the ir/ur/er sound over the next two weeks. 
  • Fluency grid: Read the words as fast as they can and tick each word they get correct and dot the words they need more practice with. 

Friday - PJ Day

This Friday the 26th is Pajama day at OLC. All students are invited to wear the pajamas to school for a gold coin donation. This money will be going towards our school Caritas fundraising.

Meals after wheels
Next Monday 29th June, the Year Two and One students have the opportunity to participate in “Wheels After Meals”. This involves bringing their roller blades/skateboards or scooters to school to ride at lunchtime after eating their lunch.  They will also be required to bring all the appropriate safety gear, (helmet, knee & elbow pads), labelled with their name.  Students should put their roller blades/skateboards or scooter in the area behind Mr Lee’s office.
If your child would like to participate, please send the attached permission slip to their class teacher by Friday this week (19th June). This will be sent out soon from Admin. 
The students will be supervised by Mr Torrese and Mr Lee in the top car park on Monday.

Cross Country
We would love to see you at the annual OLC Cross Country next Wednesday the 1st of July. The Year Ones will be the first class running at 9.15 and the carnival will conclude by 11.00 am. Presentations will be held next term, when we can hold Assemblies - Yay!

It is asked that you park in the top car park or the Sloan car park as the gravel car park will be closed. We would love to see you there!

Phew! I think that is everything! I hope you have a lovely week!
